Well, did it make sense to sell United Technologies (UTX) in February, simply because the market went down in January? Of course not, Cramer said, adding that even Honeywell (HON) was interested in buying the company in a mega-merger. 

"I am urging you to chuck the historical analogies," he reasoned, knowing darn well that the "sell in May" crowd will be out soon. 

Just because something happened in one month, doesn't mean it's a forgone conclusion that certain preconceived outcomes are guaranteed to happen in the future. "Every year is different," just do your homework, Cramer concluded.
